Police have arrested a man suspected of robbing a bank inside a southeast Wichita grocery store Tuesday afternoon.

The robbery happened at Intrust Bank, 5500 E. Harry, inside the Dillons store at Harry and Edgemoor, said Dixon Land, a Federal Bureau of Investigation spokesperson.

The robber gave a note demanding cash to a bank teller at around 1:25 p.m., then left the store with money, police Officer Kevin Wheeler said in a news release. Detectives and officers investigating the robbery identified the location of a suspect, and he was arrested.

Wheeler said the 20-year-old man was taken into custody in the 1000 block of South Dalton, near Harry and Rock. Police did not identify him.

The man had threatened he had a weapon during the robbery, though no weapon was displayed, Land said. No injuries were reported in the robbery.

The police and FBI investigation is ongoing.
